Company of Makers

Company of Makers exists to support ex-Service personnel and their partners with transitioning from military to civilian life, no matter how long it’s been since they left the Armed Forces.

Our Armed Forces operate in challenging environments. For them, separation from loved ones, dealing with sudden change and uncertainty is part of the day job. They are trained to ‘adapt and overcome’ in the most extreme conditions.

So, what can we learn from their experiences? Week-by-week, we’ll explore the Lockdown with people who have Served in the Armed Forces and the organisations helping those in need within the military community.

Hosted by Company of Makers co-founder Steve Bomford and former submariner Mike Davis-Marks.
